Used to love this place but they moved and after spending $20 on a cab to find out they are closed for good... Just trying to save someone from wasting their time and money. Try Invita for great italian instead. Reasonable bistro with great food!,

A outdoor TERRAZZA beckons to you to dine al fresco - it seems to transport you from Cabo to a lovely Italian country . The story behind the restaurant Il Cuore Di Napoli and chef Gianfranco Zappalá raised in Calabria but of mather Napoletana he learn to grasp the essence of the cuisine of the two regions, Bova Marina a rock that indicates the southern point of the Italian peninsula, in the interior part of the famous boot, in the region of Calabria, facing the Ionio sea and the isle of Sicilia, an area of a thousand stories of civilization, culture, great battles. This volcanic land produces the most exquisite flavors in all the Mediterranean area. Gianfranco Zappalá , executive chef of the restaurant began his love for the food of south Italy by the preparation and the secrets in the kitchens of his grandmothers. He learned the recipes conserved in his family by hundreds years continuing the traditions Napoletana and Calabrese. Fisherman and hunter by heart and by heritage, with a great passion for the sea, the mountain, and their fruits. He participated in his youth in the fishing, hunting and the elaboration of dishes of the earth & sea in the family restaurant and hotel Girasole, which still exists, to the delight of its multiple clients from the north of Europe. Gianfranco later operated a restaurant and disco at the "Monte Papagallo", in Bova Marina, a gorgeous place, surrounded by olive trees, owned by his family. In 1993, with anxieties to fly, he accepted the invitation from the corporative of the clothing designer and compatriot Giorgio Armani, to become Executive Chef in two of his restaurants ( Armani's Beverly Hills and Costa Mesa, California ), immediately Gianfranco's "grandmother's recipes became famous". His success extended to the consultancy of five Star restaurants in Phoenix, Sedona, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada. The consulting firm offers a society to the first San Giovanni Restaurant, located in Anaheim Hills. In November 1997, attracted by the many stories from clients who shared his passion of fishing, they told him of a place, on the south of the Peninsula of Baja California, where the most exquisite tunas, mahi-mahi and marlins could be obtained from the Pacific, decided to visit this beautiful region, and fell in love with the rustic beauty, very similar to his home lands.Since March of 1998 Gianfranco, member of the F.I.C. (Italian Federation of Chefs), keeps his knowledge of Italian cuisine updated with some Master Chefs in Florence,NAPLES, Reggio Calabria and Rome, Italy. He has received a special recognition to preserve the culinary traditions as to innovate the dishes with modern ideas and the combination of ingredients of the old and new world.
